Neonatal Respiratory Disorders 2nd edition

Lung disease is a major indication for the admittance of the neonate to a specialist intensive care unit, and is a particularly common complication in the pre-term baby where the lungs are insufficiently developed at birth and easily damaged by early treatments. As a consequence, this is an area of intensive international research activity.

In this comprehensive update of the well-received first edition, leading researchers from all over the world have been invited to contribute in their specialist areas. The book continues to provide detailed coverage of the pathogenesis, clinical and laboratory features and management of lung disorders in the neonate, with increased emphasis on the underlying immunology and major additions to the sections on respiratory support, chronic lung disease and abnormalities in lung growth and development to reflect the changes that have occurred in these areas since the previous edition appeared in 1995.

Providing an unrivalled up-to-date statement on the problems that are faced in the neonatal intensive care unit on a daily basis, this is an invaluable addition to the bookshelves of neonatologists and other personnel involved in the care of critically ill babies.

Review

“Every neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) has a collection of treasured reference materials that are constantly consulted for the details of neonatology practice, review of specific respiratory conditions, and for valuable “pictures” from other experiences. [This book] is one such treasured text.” —Respiratory Care
